that merits being taken into account in the incumbent barack obama and his challenger mitt romney. that is the jinx of the second term on so many presidents. only seven of 19 presidents elected to a second term avoided having a troubled or failed second term. that would give the country's 38% chance of obama and the nation experiencing the economic climate if obama is reelected. do not suggest the gamble shouldn't be taken. rather it is playing with politics might give us cause. what is the history project about a second term for barack obama were he free elective with so few presidents having success in that time in office. one of the challenges that face those that have troubled or failed the second term and would allow others to succeed and can barack obama overcome these challenges if he is reelected to become a member of that select group of presidents the we did for the quagmire of the second term and somehow came through relatively unscathed? success in the second term doesn't imply that they're one of failures or significant stumbles. some even severe during that then venu
the capability to find people that are very difficult to find and targeting them barack obama gave a speech now famous in chicago that the anti-war rally against the pending invasion of iraq and obama's there to speak against invading iraq. but he wasn't comfortable this is the anti-war rally in their renault's who show up and he felt that of place even though he was close to invade iraq the point* was he was not against all wars but believed summer necessary and it just citing instances where that was the case. fed he felt the appropriate target were the leaders of the al qaeda who planned the attacks and he said i would take up arms against al qaeda myself. and maybe then he had dreams to become president of the united states but could not have been fish should powell to have his finger audit trigger. that no american impressive dance except president bush he is directly involved in the fight against terrorism and al qaeda. to the degree he could not have imagined to take up arms myself. i have good writing stories my whole life. it is says simple as 78 on the page sustain this you have disco
. and on the obama side, it was pretty clear his campaign was about the middle class. and every single ad we ran was if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses. so i think there was a much clearer lane for us to swim in than on the romney side. were they supposed to defend against the bain attacks? were today supposed to bet -- get into the welfare reform game? it was unclear. >> look, though, you run a superpac. do you think they're good for america? >> no. i think a system where you can give unlimited contributions and in some cases not disclose who those contributions come from is not something that's particularly a good thing for the country. our view is that even though we were against citizens united, even though we support campaign finance reform, as long as karl rove and the koch brothers were going to have hundreds of millions of dollars in this election, we were going to make sure that somebody had the president's back and not, you know, and not just sit on the sidelines while all that money was being spent. >> so that means we now have a bipartisan consensus. because newt gingrich wa
democratic majority in both houses of congress. some people later on like and what obama did in 2008, but obama's mandate was i no means clear as the johnson's was and he had a whole year plus 13 or 14 months to be thinking about what he would do in his own right after that election of 64 when he is inaugurated in 1965, and he jumped right in with his great society program and he had a whole series of special committees and so forth had been studying issues, education, poverty, welfare, urban problems and so forth of task forces and had all these reports ahead of him in the congress of 65 started and he staged the hugest inaugurations ever. the only thing was obama in 2009 and he hits the ground running in a big way with a series of speeches and proposals and messages to congress for medicare, medicaid, elementary and secondary education as it became called, title i education , the creation of the housing and urban development cabinet and ended up supporting the first in 1966. so, yes, the great society and the passage of that i don't know how johnson does it is front and center part
. electing president obama, if you remember, if you go back to win, leading up to and when he announced his support for marriage equality, one you had many people just asking the question. is this going to be good? is this going to be bad? than you had our opponents saying the doom and gloom scenario suggesting to other politicians that they follow the president's lead and they will follow it right into retirement. one of my favorites that became a pet project of mine and many of you probably got my fundraising call before this little race in iowa, justice wiggins was on the ballot for -- in iowa. our opposition, the three judges on the iowa supreme court ever up in, the national organization for marriage spent $1 million to keep them and did so by 10 or 15 points. justice wiggins was the fourth judge on the ballot this november was made their priority as well. they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and they campaigned across the strait and had us trips across the state. we went in with some lawyers that were there in the state and a partner in the campaign and we save justice wiggins.
of gifts to latinos and voter minorities that is insulting. they didn't vote for obama because of obamacare. i think that he is engaging in obama in the same type of class warfare discussion that he wants to have. i think we have to go back to the conservative populism which is to talk about the economy but i would say something else. we cannot run only on the economic message. we have to be full conservatives on social issues, on the national security and on the economy. >> and aspirational americanism where you are free to go as far as you want to go and to do what you want to do and york absolutely right about the community especially, you know, they're very on japan real and when they start small businesses, guess what they start liking the big government less. >> unfortunately we are out of time so want to thank you all for joining me today and please join me in thanking our panelists.
